Addenum: the UIManager
appears be a good method for the future yumex. It uses XML application similar to XUL from Mozilla.
I have used the pyGtk tutorial a lot, when i was starting to learn how to make gtk programs in python. It is very nice.
To design the user interfase i use the glade interface designer, where you can design the user interface. Glade also save the userinterface in a XML file, you can load from you application and interact with the all the widgets.
I have not used the UIManager, but it look a lot like using glade.
Most of the Fedora systemtools are written in Python, it is a very powerful language.
